Presumptive Claims: Practical Pearls and Pitfalls of the PACT Act

Auditorium: 3:15 PM - 4:45 PM

The PACT Act expanded availability of VA health care and disability benefits to potentially millions of veterans and their survivors. Implementing a law of this size is certainly a massive undertaking. This session will cover an overview of the PACT Act and its many moving parts, what seems to be working well so far, and VA’s missteps in implementation from an advocates perspective.
